Increased Natural Gas Supply to Bring Lower Heating Bills for Many in Ohio
For 1.2 million homeowners in Ohio, heating bills this winter might be the lowest of the last decade.
Columbia Gas of Ohio announced this week its monthly budget plan for the next year for its average customer natural gas usage, and it’s $63 compared with $80 last year. Each customer’s budget plan varies, however, based on past usage by that customer.
